Humans are souls, buried deep below the coloured dusts of knowledge and experiences of the consciousness, within their physical bodies. The soul, when it deserts the body, dispenses with the colours of dusts to emerge as purest of the pure light. Yet, due to a cosmic error, if it carries some of the coloured dusts with it before manifesting in another physical form, then what could be the fate of that soul? The novel, Chase of Choices, the story of a never-ending search in today s global context is recounted through Olivia, an American woman a divorcee and, mother of two who falls in love with an Indian, believing him to be the soul mate for whom her soul had longed for, since long. The story is as emotional, as inquisitive and romantic it is. Yet, at the same time, the underlying vibes are enlightening: revealing as many as 46 universal laws of human life, through 46 short chapters. Dr Hari Parameshwar, through this gripping and thrilling fiction, divulges how choices could sometimes really mess up one s life in our incessant strive to embrace balance in work, personal life and family whilst exposing the hollowness in the institution of marriage and depletion of values in family system, in utmost and brutal honesty.
What a wonderful story.I found myself finish reading it in one sitting.The novel was too good.I felt the story to be fresh and it stood apart from rest of the novels i have read up until now.The story follows Ravi Raj Nambiar, a divorcee who divorced his wife four years ago(the mistake totally falls on his ex-wife) and is now searching for a prospective wife who can be a mentor to his children than a doting mother as his children will not accept anyone as mother that easily.His main concern is his daughter, Rajita who is just 8 years old.She is at a crucial stage of her life.That is why she needs to be pampered and cared for well.
Ravi Raj Nambiar alias Raj who registered himself on IDM, that is Indian Divorcee Matrimony finds many women interested in him throughout the story.First, he approves a proposal from a woman from Jammu followed by a woman in Bhopal.He is left with a choice of selecting one woman who can be added to his family.Then in a twist of events, he is flooded with two other proposals too.One from an annoying woman and another from a mysterious woman.He becomes confused what to do next as it is a tricky situation for all the four women are keenly interested in him.He makes choices that he should be ashamed of.The story piques readers at this point of time.
As a reader, i was very intererested in Raj marrying Anjali and living a happily ever after life.She was such a sweet, lovely, adorable woman who has a voice of child.I was able to relate to her absolutely.All the other women who wanted to enter his life were all selfish in some form.I simply couldn't understand them and their reasons any better.One of the woman's approach was love at first sight upon seeing his photo on the matrimonial site.It was hardly believable.I 100% thought she must have some strong motive.But it was quite a surprise, there wasn't any.The ending was sad.
On the whole, the story was entertaining as well as educating about the different emotions of people.Chase of choices had all the right elements to be called a fantastic story.The characters were all well sketched and it was a real page turner.Kudos to the author for producing such a rattling good story.
